Who we are...
Public Act Theatre was established in 2015 with support from the Byron Bay Community Centre. Founder Jo Franklin recognised an opportunity to engage the community in applied theatre.
We are dedicated to cultivating community empowerment and social dialogue through theatre making and collaboration. Public Act operates within a social arts model to promote social equality, deepen social connection, and to share in the process of creating change within a community.
We believe that through the practices of applied theatre and social arts, together with local community service partners we can provide pathways for a more connected community.
